The western Algarve, a land away from the touristy towns of the central coast, is an area of stunning cliff tops, quiet fisherman's villages and lush green interior. It's also a birdwatchers paradise and while autumn and spring bring in the huge migrations, endemic bird species are numerous throughout the winter.  Temperatures here mean that winter is more akin to springtime in North  America, giving you the chance to explore and enjoy some of Europe's most beautiful beaches at other times of year.

Our six night tour takes you along quiet roads and sun kissed cycle tracks. You'll cycle along beautiful coastlines enjoying a mix of golden sandy beaches, rugged cliff tops and pass through pretty villages, some of which seem unaffected by the outside world. Country lanes take you into the lush green interior passing large reservoirs, alpine-like meadows and rich holm oak forests. Visit the historic maritime towns of Sagres and Lagos; Henry the Navigator lived here, and built his own fortress at Sagres, near to where you'll find Cabo Sao Vicente Europe's south-western cape, with its iconic lighthouse and fascinating museum.

We have hand-picked three wonderful hotels all with their own charm. These include, a modern **** design hotel perched on a cliff in Sagres, a **** hotel in Lagos full of Portuguese colonial charm and in Pedralva, a village where the houses have been rustically renovated to create individual rooms. All hotels have pools with Sagres and Lagos boasting covered ones. Most evening meals are included so you can dine on the freshest salads, seafood or excellent meat accompanied by tasty cheeses and chouricos, washed down with a selection of Portuguese wines.
